Twice FIFA World Player of the Year winner David Beckham wears the shirt of Los Angles Galaxy for the last time in the Major League Soccer (MLS) Cup final, in which his team meets Houston Dynamo. 

Former captain of England's national team quits the club after six years in America's highest soccer league.

"I wanted to experience one last challenge before the end of my playing career," the 37 year-old former Manchester United and Real Madrid star commented on the move. 

"I don't see this as the end of my relationship with the league as my ambition is to be part of the ownership structure in the future," Beckham added.

Melbourne Heart said they are in talks with Beckham over a "10-game stint" in Australian League. As of yet, the player has not confirmed the claims. 

Last season, in which LA Galaxy won their third MLS Cup, Beckham was voted the league's best player by supporters.

"David has achieved great things on and off the field during his time with the Galaxy, and he will always be an important part of our [MLS'] history," said the MLS commissioner Don Garber.
